September 29, 2016

The 20-year old Mohammad Hussein Yousef Khweis suffered with skull fractures as well as wounds around his eye and forehead after being hit by a sound grenade in the village of Al-Tur.

Clashes broke out on Wednesday afternoon between the occupation forces and students in the village of Al-Tur during which the forces stormed into “Ibn Rushd” School in the village and harassed students and arrested one of them. The forces fired a sound grenade towards the locals to disperse them and after leaving the school’s courtyard they fired another sound grenade.  Mohammad Khweis was injured by the shrapnel of the grenade and lost consciousness; he also suffered a severe bleeding.

The young men took Khweis to Al-Maqased hospital where he received the necessary treatment.

Mohammad’s mother explained that her son suffered skull fractures and needed more than 20 stitches to close the wounds he suffered. He also suffered from severe swelling in his face and eye; some of his teeth were also broken due to the injury.

Khweis is a freed prison who was released on 12/2/2016 after spending 16 months inside the occupation’s prisons.
